    I couldn't be bothered to go back and check, but it felt like all four issues collected here ended on the same kind of cliffhanger - reintroducing an old character unseen till now in the series. Bit lazy and predictable, that. I couldn't be bothered to go back and check, but i...

    So. Much. Happens. Potential Spoiler Warning! Sorry, I can't talk about what I want to without at least hints of what happens in this one leaking out. If you haven't read this volume yet...well, go read it! Lemire is getting the band back together in a big way in...

    Gonna be lazy and post my thoughts from issue #12 as it sums up my thoughts on this volume as a whole: This was way too short and quick, and I'm starting to feel like things are coming too easily and the conflicts and consequences aren't dire enough. I mean, I don't w...

    This series, swoon. I just can't wait for the next volume. Space travel, robots, vampires, magic, love, and family. I just have all the feels. Series starts with Descender and continues here in Ascender. Driller is a real killer... he's my favorite killer. This series, swo...

    To quote Tom Petty, "The waiting is the hardest part," and waiting for volume four to drop is going to suck. Ascender delivers the goods! To quote Tom Petty, "The waiting is the hardest part," and waiting for volume four to drop is going to suck. Ascender delivers the goo...

    Familiar faces return in all sorts of guises as this short four issue arc brings our two disparate groups into some totally new locales. I was very surprised to learn that this was only four issues, since Ascender and Descender before it have usually been 4 or 5, but given the cliffhan...

    I feel so sorry for anyone who started Ascender without having read Descender. They must be SO lost. This volume has a lot of plots being juggled, as it reintroduces characters from Descender, extends the antagonist storyline a bit, and has two separate plots going for our two protago...

    So good! Much more of a transition and I hate the cliffhanger at the end of this volume, but things are starting to "gel" for this arc and I'm here for it. Lemire leans a bit much on the deus ex machina here, but I'm willing to hold that judgment until this seri...

    This book flew bye, looking back not too much happened. Wish it was a bit longer but the ending! Cannot wait for next one. ...

    I really love this series but it was the least engaging of the three books. Not much happens, but I did end up somewhat confused about the number of different species/names/backstories etc. ...

    I can't believe I'm caught up. That never happens to me with graphic novels and now I have to WAIT?! (view spoiler)[I am very glad that Effie came back to life. Her tech defeated the vamp virus! Mother is becoming... not mother? Her sister seems to be sort of in charge ...

    Really starting to feel like a continuation of the Descender series in the last two volumes, although I would love the new characters to be fleshed out as much as the old ones were! ...

    The only honest drawback I can say for this volume, was that it was a lot shorter than I would have liked. Now with even more characters returning from the previous descender series, there?s nothing stopping this becoming my favourite comic of all time. Amazing art work, a fast paced...

    This is a great return to form. Two separate stories but both kind of related to the bigger picture. Previous characters return ( Love driller haha). Dustin Nguyens artwork is awesome as always. Great cliffhanger ending ...

    This story is wonderful. Jeff Lemire seems to thrive in the weird and uncanny. I don't recall another of his stories with a set of characters that has gripped me this much. Usually with his stuff I'm in it for the plot and wonder what weird twist is ahead. This time, I really...

    What an awesome book. The whole descender/ascender series has been great. My biggest complaints are that sometimes you just have to accept absurd things and the absurd explanation for them. Also while the watercolors have really grown on me over the course of this series, I often find ...

    I like this world and this was my favorite installation so far of Ascender. Things are clipping along quickly, which I appreciate over the "let's see how many issues/pages/panels we can stretch an arc into" The art is awesome, as always. I like this world and this ...

    One of the best found family space operas in recent memory. Volume 3 covers Effie and Andy's daughter Mila's escape from Mother's vampires, and her ultimate reunion with the cast we've grown to love over the series. I especially enjoyed the evolution of the ...

    The book description is a lie; this actually only covers issues 11-14, making this another Image release with only four chapters, grumble grumble. I know in this case it might be an issue of 2020 slowing chapters down but it still feels like a tease to have so little in a volume. ...
